The National Park Service turned 96 years old on August 25, 2012. In honor of this milestone, the Obed Wild and Scenic River unveiled the winners of the park's first ever photography contest. This page will feature snapshots of the winning photographs, the four categories (flora, fauna, artistic, and landscape), and the name of the artist who took the photo. Keep checking back on this page, as a new winner will be enveiled every week.
